MP lauds importance of Iran’s high defensive capabilities

Tehran, A senior Iranian lawmaker lauded the importance of Iran's high defensive capabilities and described it as an important factor in promotion of regional stability.

Iran's defensive power is essential to regional stability, Mohammad Javad Jamali, a member of the presiding board of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said on Friday.

He noted that if Iran had not powerful enough today, a crazy warlord like the former Iraqi dictator Saddam would have destabilize the region again.

If Iran had been powerful enough in the military domain, Saddam would have not dared to attack the country, Jamali added.
